April 4, 2014
Off to the aid of a dying cat
it was Saturday night
when we heard about that.

And indeed for you together with me,
it was a boo-hoo,
yes, surely to rue,
such a painful debacle to see!

But workaday tasks beckoned;
good thing, too,
as well we reckoned:
to give grieving mind
solace to find
and something important to do.

So I went to the old man whose name escapes,
to give an estimate. Will memory serve?
As now it scrapes
with these conditions met,

Eegad, that tree looked big to me;
in a scene Iíll not soon forget.
